I've been working on a screenplay for a while now. But I seem to have reached quite the dead end. My question is, what do you guys do, to get past a sticking point. Especially when you don't want to abandon the story as a whole, because it still has a ton of potential?
The story I am writing goes like this: The last member of an ancient race is forced to work alongside a human being. A race that she was raised to hate. But with the fate of the tree of life, and therefore life as a whole, hinging on whether or not the two can work together. These two very different people must learn to put aside their differences and work together.
My problem occurs at the end of the very first scene to feature interaction between the two main characters. I've managed to have the actual interaction occur, but I can't seem to find a way to the next plot point.
Update: I don't know if this help but the scene I'm talking about occurs about 5-6 minutes in. With the interaction being the ancient being saving the human from a hideous wolf-like monster. The story as a whole also features a great deal of elements from Celtic, and Norse mythology.
